Capital letters

WALT: Write an explanation telling people what capital letters are and when you use them in writing.

Introduction: If you were to write a capital letter on a lined paper the letters should be touching the top line so there much bigger than the other letters.

Names: Capital letters are always used when typing or handwriting someones name, if I were to type my name it would start with a capital letter like this (Brooklyn). Capital letters are very important to use for names because they aren't just anything that word are people’s  names. For example My friends Khaia, Ariana and Lucy.

Holidays:  Holidays are also capital letters for sentences, the reason why the have capital letters is because Christmas it’s not just any ordinary word it is a celebration most people do with their families and friends. Christmas is also to celebrate jesus birthday. Here is an example of a capital letter sentence Tomorrow my family and friends are coming over to celebrate Christmas.

Places: If at anytime naming a country or city you must always have a capital letter because countries and cities are places. They are not just a random made up word it is a real word. The city and country  I live in is called Auckland New Zealand. Alot of people come from many different countries like India, China, Russia, Mexico, Fiji and more. Did you see how I named every country with a capital letter?

Dates: Dates must always have a capital letter because it is a day of the week like Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday,Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday they are all days of the week So you should always put a capital letter at the start.

Conclusion: Capitals are very important so use them!!!
